Fair play to him!
To be honest I am not a fan of Ibrahima Sonko.
In fact I think he is 'probably' one of the worst defenders, on his early form with Pompey, that I have ever seen play for Pompey with my own eyes - and I have some donkies pull on the blue shirt over the years!
Although what I would say is the guy has gone up in my estimations a great deal with his comments in The News today.
He accepts that Rocha John Rocha and Aaron Mokoena have been playing well and has no complaints that they are keeping him out of the starting 11 at the moment.
In fact he actually understands this and tended to hint that he accepts he has not really been playing that well in the opening months of his Pompey career so has few complaints.
What he says that he will do is look to give it his all, if and when chances come along.
In a day and age when some can demand to move on, or kick-off if they are even taken off, to hear him speaking quite openly and honestly is quite refreshing and his comments actually add to the weight that this squad is very much united as one - long may this continue!
Although, in spite of his thoughts and honesty, I am still unconvinced that he will improve as much as he would need to in order to secure that regular place, then again others have managed to do this so you can never say never...
